What Should Go Here: Boulevard Kiosk

What business would you like to see fill this vacant spot on Castro Valley Boulevard?

The small beige kiosk that sits along Castro Valley Boulevard has sat vacant for years.

The site was home to the former Carry Outee, a Chinese food vendor. However, in 2008, it lost its lease and relocated to Hayward.

Though its website says it is looking into reopening in Castro Valley soon, owner Cecil Chu said after the economy took a turn for the worst, these plans are now put on hold.

The Castro Valley Boulevard kiosk had also been home to other well-known restaurants in the past. Can you name a few of them? What kinds of foods did you regularly order there?

More importantly, if you could have your way, what business would you like to revisit this kiosk as? 

Post your suggestions in the comments section below.

It looks like a place that should be serving the best hot dogs and fries in the world.

Tear it down please. It adds no value to the Blvd.

I have to agree, this is not a kiosk and not a storefront, just an eyesore that needs to go.

I think it could be really cute if it were nicely landscaped, give a pretty coat of paint, with little tables outside, hanging planters. Perhaps a Crepes to go place...mmmmm.

Carry Outee should have never closed. My family and I loved their food. I agree that a hotdog place would be nice.

@Shelia, I remember my mom always ordering Carry Outee when we first moved to Castro Valley. @Dorothy, have you ever tried Frodo Joe's crepes in San Lorenzo? It'd be really cool if they opened a to-go type of place here.

I think the parking lot near there would be a great spot for food trucks! It would be so fun to get some gourmet food trucks to stop by CV.
